Grants are available for charities, not-for-profit social enterprises and community interest companies in the UK that are working to support young carers / young adult carers (round one) or young offenders (round one). Grants are available from £10,000 up to £60,000 for a duration of six months to two years. A maximum of £30,000 per year can be requested.
The Triangle Trust 1949 Fund has launched a new grants strategy for 2021. This year, the Trust’s primary focus is to help support the needs of young carers and young people caught up in the criminal justice system. This marks a shift from previous years when the Trust focused its funding on unpaid adult carers and adult offenders.
The first round of 2021 provided grants to young carers/young adult carers. In recognition of the huge impact the pandemic has had on children and young people across the UK, especially that those with caring responsibilities are disproportionately affected, the Trust has focused its funding on providing support to young carers and young adult carers to address learning gaps linked to the pandemic.
The funding is for projects that work with young people with criminal convictions (up to the age of 25) to find meaningful and secure employment.
For the second round of 2021, organisations must have experience of either working with young offenders or working with adult ex-offenders in an employment context.
There is a two-stage application process.
• Stage one is to complete the online application form on the Triangle Trust website.
• Stage two will involve a visit from the Trust’s Director to the shortlisted applicants (usually between six and eight organisations).
